when someone callous a name, you are not scarred. >> bob: they used to -- >> greg: you're insulted. >> kimberly: that happened to my friend. hawkeye. dabs that helped his ego. didn't hurt him. >> greg: it's not nice to call them names but you're not scarred. save that for something bad. >> kimberly: that is it for us "the five." thank you for watching. see you tomorrow if you dare. ♪ ♪ >> bret: they are talking in private but still feuding in public. the president and the speaker walking together toward the fiscal cliff. so now what? this is "special report." good evening. i'm bret baier. if there is any progress made on back away from the fiscal cliff you would have a hard time knowing it from today's events. both sides essentially say they are waiting for other on more details on how to balance higher taxes for rich with spending cuts. in a moment with put karl rove and joe trippi in the negotiating room. but first we have a report or # 2 days, or as we will explain later, less to go. >> president obama back on the road 24. hours after the hush-hush meeting with john boehner
interesting conversations over the weekend was bob corker saying, let's just go ahead, concede to the tax argument, which would flip the entire spotlight onto entitlements, which is what republicans have been trying to get the discussion to be about over the last couple of weeks. >> when you hear about entitlements, why aren't they talking directly, you know, medicare part b koshcosts x, or medicare a, should cost this. the last thing a republican wants to do is say, look, i'm cutting back medicare. so, i mean, if you switch it to entitlements, suddenly everyone has to say, social security goes from 66 to 68. is that what we do? do we means test medicare? it is so much easier for grover who will be on cnbc, forget the fiscal cliff, i will come after you with both barrels. if you vote tax increase. what's more -- do they want to rise above a tax increase? no. do they want to rise above fiscal cliff? no. what they want it do is not rise above the radar screen of raising taxes. and grover is more powerful than a recession. i asked him point-blank on "meet the press," college chum, look, it d
